It has recently come to light that 58-62 LEWES ROAD, BRIGHTON, BN2 3HW currently the site of the Lewes Road Community Garden will be turned into a Tesco Express, Betting shop, and yet more flats with no access to parking.
It has been highlighted by the clean Air for Lewes Road campaign that our area already suffers with high levels of traffic and poor air quality. Building more flats without access to parking, as well as an increase in deliveries will only make these problems worse.
We also boast on Lewes road a diverse selection of retailers that service our area very well. There are two major supermarkets already in the area, as well as two smaller supermarkets and also six independent grocery stores (mainly run by ethnic minorities). Also two newsagents, and four off-licenses. Not to mention that Lewes Road has two primary schools in the immediate vicinity. Which leaves the questions do we really need or want this development in our area?
The local council have already granted permission for this to go ahead without proper public consultation. But it is not too late for our voices to be heard. Say No to Tesco on Lewes Road!
We are calling upon the local council to act now to reconsider the plans to allow the development at 58-62 LEWES ROAD, BRIGHTON, BN2 3HW, and ask for the area to be resurveyed taking into consideration the problems residents already face with high levels of pollution and access to parking, and also what impact future developments could have on a diverse array of local businesses.
